You need two peer-reviewed articles to complete Part A of your assignment.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It can take years to get published, so you may need to explore related areas of research rather than your specific, more current topic. For instance, search for research on public reactions to pandemics like H1N1 or Ebola rather than Coronavirus (COVID-19), which likely won't appear in any peer-reviewed sources yet. You will use this older research to inform a study on your new area of investigation!
